New London Landmarks receives coronavirus relief grant
New London — Connecticut Humanities has awarded New London Landmarks a $5,000 CARES Act Humanities Relief Grant for help with salaries and utilities.
“This funding will help see us through 2020, making it possible for us to plan educational programs, conduct research and preserve New London’s historic places,” New London Landmarks Executive Director Laura Natusch said in a written statement.
A COVID-19 pandemic-related drop in revenue and the cancellation of several programs had caused New London Landmarks to lay off its staff. The grant funds allowed Natusch and archivist Tambria Moore to return to work.
The CT Humanities CARES Act Humanities Relief Grant program is made possible with funding provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security, or CARES, Act to preserve jobs and help support organizations negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Connecticut Humanities, a nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, supports cultural and historic organizations that tell the state’s stories, build community and enrich lives.
“We’re grateful to Connecticut Humanities for recognizing the value of our work and for helping to fund this work through these challenging times,” Natusch said.
